I was there about that time in 2008 and it was closed. It more than likely won't be open so that they can ready it for the Bill and Ted show during HHN, since it will most likely open at the tail end of September.

It might still be a little too early, but any word yet on the last week of July, first week of Aug? I know that's peak time, but I hope none of the main rides will be down.

I wouldn't worry cause I don't think they would close any main rides during peak season

Nothing on the website indicates any closures yet...keep checking back.

It's possible since Twister was only open during the busiest times this year but no one knows for sure. Check back closer to your dates.

Good advice I agree

While at IOA on Friday, I noticed Captain America Diner was closed. I thought that was strange considering how busy it was. I don't know how long it's going to be closed.

What's closed for Oct 2009

We haven't been to Islands Of adventure in several years. I hear part of the lost continent is closed due to Harry Potter. Can you tell me what is closed or will be closed for Oct 2009?

Specifically looking at Dueling Dragons, Flying Unicorn, The 8th Voyage of Sindbad and Poseidon's fury. I think just the flying unicorn is closed but wanted to double check.

Thanks
Dawn

Of those attractions you mentioned, only The Flying Unicorn is closed. Universal has not mentioned anything about Dueling Dragons' closing date so that's pure speculation.

Can't see anything on the Uni website except for the part of IOA closed for WWOHP.

Any news on any planned closures next week? (12-19 October)

Also, I went in 2007 and since, i've heard people say that the water tunnel on poseidon's fury doesn't run any more, are all the effects on, or have they "cut back"?

There is nothing listed on the website mentioning any closing during that time...except for construction on WWoHP. I think the Poseidon's Fury water tunnel was the result of cutbacks.
